They exist because the make the owner a lot of money. Google's website makes the owner a lot of money. I know people that know very little about the Internet who bought some programs off the Internet signed up for an adsense account and make over $10K a month. As long as that can happen "scrapers" will make money. I personaly don't have one. Those things out rank me. As oilman said in Vegas Google really likes their own results. In my opinion G has allowed it to prosper long enough for me to think that they approve of it. The reason they exist is because you can not distinguish the legit ones from the non legit ones. The only thing that distinguishes a legit site from a "scraper" site is the ammont of traffic you get. I could show you a large legitamate site that is not considered spam by google that if I took off the branding anybody includeing efv would consider it a spam site.
